Abstract: Sources are owners/operators of facilities which produce polymers and resins from epichlorohydrin and sources which manufacture epichlorohydrin-modified non-nylon polyamide resins. EPA and delegated states will use the information identify new, modified, reconstructed, or existing sources, or process changes which may affect the source's status and to ensure that affected sources are meeting the standards.

Form Numbers: None.

Respondents/affected entities: Epoxy resin and non-nylon polyamide production facilities.

Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR Part 63, Subpart W).

Estimated number of respondents: 7 (total).

Frequency of response: Initially, occasionally, quarterly and semiannually.

Total estimated burden: 3,961 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b).

Total estimated cost: $389,981 (per year), includes $9,000 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs.

Changes in the Estimates: There in an adjustment increase in the respondent burden and a decrease in the Agency burden. In addition, there is an increase in the total number of responses. This is not due to program changes. These changes occurred because the previous ICR did not consistently account for the respondent reporting requirements. This ICR corrected the number and frequency of each report, including semiannual SSM reports, quarterly excess emission reports, and annual CMS summary reports, to ensure that all burden calculations are consistent with the regulatory requirement. The previous ICR also included several reporting burden under Table 1, Section 5 Recordkeeping Requirements. This has been corrected in the current ICR.
